I picked up a Fujifilm TL Super Mini (also called the Tiara in Japan) from a boot fair for £3 a while ago. It’s got a cute lens action when you open the cover – I’m a fan of clamshell designs, as my Olympux XA4 is one too – and a really easy to use drop-in loading action. It’s also got a nifty “panoramic” function, which isn’t truly panoramic, like an XPan or similar, it just masks a 35mm frame. The lens is pin-sharp though, and the colours it produces are just gorgeous. I’d love to try it with some really contrasty black and white film. Watch this space, more to come from this little camera.
